One year of BBSP

Today’s the one-year anniversary of this here blog. I’m a little stunned that I’ve made it this far. So of course, I’m doing what all good year-end wrap-ups do–I’m throwing a bunch of clips together on a page.

These are my favorite posts of the last year, in chronological order. Why 15? Why not? I originally set out to post 10, but I found 15 that I really liked, and I didn’t want to choose between them. But it could just as easily have been 20. Enjoy!

2. kids and books

3. milli-Bee

4. 30 Days & Nellie Bly

5. teaching values through literature

6. big watee

7. reward & punishment

8. the persistence of memory through things

9. “I will not yield to a politic of despair”

    One year! Congratulations!

    You’ve accomplished much as a blog mistress in one year, my friend. Bumble… is a blog to be reckoned with, a blog of note, a blog of distinction.

    Bravo to you, you fine, badass mama!

    Happy one-year anniversary, LM!

    And thanks for putting up some of your favorite posts. Interestingly enough, it was your “Princess Neck Snap” post where I first found your site. I thought it was thoughtful, poignant, intelligent and funny. So I thought to myself, “hmm, I’ve got to read more of this Bumblebee Sweet Potato. She seems like a great blogger with an interesting perspective.”

    I’m glad I was right. Keep up the great work!
